This is the type of restaurant that everyone wished they had where they lived. I'm so envious of the lucky Portland area folk who can frequent Bar Lola on a regular basis. The setting is great. A lilttle gem of a restaurant that is comfortable...More

This restaurant is outside of the overpriced tourist area. Me and my wife both had the 4 courses prefix and all 8 courses exceeded our expectation. And the price is very reasonable compare to other restaurant in the same class.

We had the 7 course blind tasting menu. The food was excellent, the wine pairings were spot on and the staff was very knowledgeable. Highly recommended. I would definitely return.

With Portland's great restaurant scene, we who live here don't get to our favorites as often as we might, but last night (our first trip in a year or so) confirmed why Bar Lola should be on everyone's "go to" list. The combination of interesting...More
